On Friday, November 11th, Assistant Chief John Desmarteau joined presenter Michael Spinella and characters from the Firefighter Phil Fire Prevention Program at our local elementary schools for a fun and lively fire safety presentation. These fun, interactive presentations include magic, games and ventriloquism with one of the program’s characters to engage the children and keep their attention while learning very important lessons. During the presentations, children learn about fire prevention, fire safety and respect for authority figures, while also encouraging positive behavior such as honesty, friendship, being a buddy not a bully, civic responsibility and more.
